by DK5EC, Karl Schmidt, Königswinter, Germany


This article describes ways how to receive echoes of space ships, satellites, meteorites and airplanes with simple means. To achieve this, simple equipment of an average radio amateur or VHF/UHF listener should be sufficient. What you need is a vhf receiver capable of SSB and a 2m yagi antenna. Big antennas owned by moon-earth-moon (EME) specialist will not be necessary, a 4-element yagi should be alright.
